A Tutorial on how to make a blog banner using Picasa instead of something fancy and complicated like Photoshop

Want a free and easy way to make your Blogger blog look more original and professional? I did. I was desperate and didn’t want to pay for a blog designer, and didn’t have time to learn Photoshop. I also LOVE the design process of changing things up once a month. So I came up with this very easy tutorial for you using a free program we can all use. Picasa.
First you need to download Picasa. It’s free and relatively simple to get your pictures into Picasa. Picasa is ‘made’ by Google and it won’t make your computer blow up, or slow down, or act really weird. I really love using it and I’ve tried almost everything. I think this is the best (and most self-explanatory) FREE editing system out there, especially if you are using Blogger. No one payed me to say that, really. (Don’t you think they should?) I am really not very computer savvy, and I don’t have the time to learn Photoshop right now, try as a might. So I’ve squeezed every ounce of juice out of Picasa and have been very happy with the results.
Once you download Picasa, it is easy to figure out how to ‘Import’ (there’s a button) your pictures from your files into Picasa. (You can do them a file at a time just to see if you like it.)
Let’s get started. Once you experiment, you’ll find a header can be made with a bunch of photos or just one and still look good.
Open Picasa and add 4 or 5 photos. Select a photo and press the Collage button found at the bottom of the window. (You can edit your pic first if you want. See the left hand side for tons of options.)
In the Settings choices, choose Picture Pile because it allows you to work with a bunch of photos and manipulate them around in tons of ways.
Click and hold on your photo and drag it to the corner (or wherever you want it). (You can select different colors for the background. Experiment away. The possibilities are endless. Also under background options you can select “Use Image.” You can download free scrapbook paper and import that into Picasa and use that as a background image if you want something besides a solid color. I did this from here. On my blog, you will see in my September banner I have chosen a pattern, but the one I have for August I chose a white background.)
See the little gray circle on the photo? That allows you to make the photo bigger or smaller and also allows you to manipulate the angle, crooked or straight, and allows you to move it everywhere. If you look in the Settings box, you can also choose to add a white border, or a Polaroid border, or create a shadow on your photo.
Now you can add more pictures. Click Clips right next to Settings. If you don’t see the photos you want to add, go to Get More and it will take you back to your Picasa files. Select your pictures there and then go back to the Collage file on top. (The button next to Library.) The picture you clicked on will show up in the little Collage window. Press the + button and it will be added. If you change your mind, click on the photo you don’t want and press Remove. (You can also press View And Edit if you decide you want to use some of the cool editing features in Picasa to make your picture better-looking.)
For this example, I want to line up my photos as straight and evenly spaced as I can get them. Remember, the possibilities are endless though, they don’t have to be straight. I DO try to keep them on the top 1/2 of the collage. It looks funny at first, but you want your collage to be long and skinny. You will crop that bottom half off later, after you add text. Just work with the top 1/2 when making a header.
When you are satisfied click Create Collage.
Now you should be back to the main Picasa page. Find your created Collage in the Library file, and click on it. Now what comes up is the basic editing features, Basic Fixes.
Find the Text button and click it. There you have TONS of choices for font. Play around and see what you like best. You can move the text where ever you want (even on top of the photos), make it whatever size you want (keep it on the page), pick the opacity of the text, and determine the color you want it. It has the same gray circle you can manipulate. Remember you want it long and skinny like a header normally looks so keep it up there in the 1/2 of the space provided.
If you want to create a whole different grouping text, you can do that too. Just click the phrase you are finished with and move your cursor to a new spot. It doesn’t have to be the spot you want the type to show up, because you can move it later. Now you can choose the color, font and size of your new phrase.
After you have your words down, click the Apply button and you will go back to the basic Edits. You are going to Crop your Collage so it looks like a header, not a huge photo, so press Crop. I make it really even on all sides and bring the crop right up under the writing.
Press Apply when you are finished.
You are going to Export (see that button on the bottom?) your collage to your photo files. When you press Export a window like this will show up. That little slider bar lets you choose the size.
The rest of this tutorial applies to Blogger Headers, but you can easily adapt it for your own platform.
If you have Minima Stretch like me, choose 1024 pixels. If you have just plainMinima or Minima Lefty, use 640. Press OK and send them to a file.
NOW, go to your blog and press the Layout tab. Press Edit on the header part (where your title is.)
Choose your Image (your collage) from your Files where you sent it. Make sure you press the “Instead of title and description” button first, and make sure the Shrink To Fit button is NOT checked before you upload your picture.
Press Save. If the Collage seems too big for you, just resend your collage at the next smaller size when Exporting to your photo files from Picasa.
